1941 is still in the midst of the Jim Crow era and near the peak of The Lost Cause mythology being strong in American history. (And "Song of the South" was made in 1946.) Bringing up the wrongness of slavery in that period in a serious way may well get a film banned from theaters in the Old South and I expect that for a adventure/western/escapist film there is no reason to risk a chunk of your expected movie audience by going there.
